I am a non medium specific artist who uses painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture, and immersive sound installation to explore the complexities of the human animal relationship. As an activist against racism, domestic violence, and animal abuse, my current work comments on these issues and examines the patriarchal power structure that perpetuates them. Recognizing that speciesism, racism, and sexism are linked oppressions, I continue to question the political and social ramifications of living in a world where animals and women are often seen as mere objects for consumption.
Animals are pets, symbols, objects, genomes, captives, food, and signifiers. I question how we can understand the non-human without our human-ness getting in the way? How can we listen and acknowledge without speaking for them, and attend to the animal without distortion?
